About Dr. Glenn Malat

Dr. Malat graduated in 1994 from the State University of New York, College of Optometry. Dr. Malat spent 12 years at East Side Eye Associates in Manhattan, building a loyal patient base and driving what is now the second largest contact lens practice in New York City.He moved his focus to NJ, where he opened three successful practices, each allowing him the freedom to develop deep relationships with his patients and the communities he served. Today, Dr. Malat’s vision is focused on a single, brand new, state of the art eye care practice, supported by his staff of 26 years. (formerly Gurian Hearing and Vision) Caldwell Eyecare offers an in-house lab for digital free form eyeglass prescriptions, with quick service. He is certified in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, including kerataconus and low vision and the co-management of LASIK. He is also a referral source for difficult and hard to fit contact lens patients. Today, his expanded evening and weekend hours maximizes service and convenience for his patients. Dr. Malat is a resident and active member of the West Caldwell community. He has been happily married for 30 years to his elementary school sweetheart, and is father to two daughters, that you will often and proudly hear him describe as “super, amazing, strong and independent young women”. His passion is his patients, especially first time contact lens fittings with his young patients. Over the years, he has been fortunate in seeing many of them grow into adults and then, in turn, bring their own children to see him–and to Dr. Malat, there is no greater satisfaction than to keep growing the Caldwell Eyecare family. When he’s not in the office, he loves spending time with his family, friends and playing baseball.

I've been going to Dr. Malat since I was 8. I am now 24. I have followed him even after he switched offices because he is a great eye doctor! He is always quick to explain everything that he's doing -from what the tests mean to what he's actually doing within the tests. He's always so friendly and is a wealth of information.

Upon arriving to my appointment I was warmly greeted by two women at the front and given paperwork to complete. Upon completion of the paperwork. I was greeted by Dr, Malat. Dr. Malat explained everything step by step that he wasgoing to do and why. He carried on a light conversation and was always reassuring during every test. Some on the eye testing equipment I had never seen before. The information and results of the testing were immediate. One of the state of the art eye examine was explained to me to similar to an MRI for eye. I was able to see my the heath of my eye for myself on a large screen. This device helps diagnose a multiple list of diseases. After the testing was complete I was assisted by a wonderful woman who was very knowledgeable and assisted me with the best alternatives for eyeglasses and my insurance coverage. The office has a positive, pleasant atmosphere with a large selection of eyewear. If you are a dog lover you will be surrounded by immediate friends. Everyone has at least one dog and loves to share stories. Now I wish I had found Dr. Malat years ago.
